Mzansi s 10 greatest goalies and coaches of all time
Peta Bala c He joined Chiefs in the famous 1981 quadruple winning season and helped them to clinch 13 trophies in five years.
His record of 21 consecutive clean sheets was considered unofficial because South Africa was not admitted to Fifa until 1992.
Patson Banda A stalwart for Bucs in goal. He never wore gloves during his playing days. Joseph Setlhodi Banks” embodied the term sweeper keeper”. He was able to play anywhere on the field and regularly took penalties for Chiefs.
Mark Anderson One of the best shot-stoppers. He was between the sticks when Bafana played their first match in 1992.
Gary Bailey Made England’s 1986 World Cup squad and played for Wits University and Chiefs.
Steve Crowley Took too long before retiring. But that didn’t harm his reputation.
Deshi Baktawer Had a short but successful stint with Pirates. He really caught everyone’s attention at Arcadia Shepherds.
Andre Arendse He won five league titles with five clubs and came out of retirement last season looking like he had never hung up his gloves.
John Tlale The Bafana and Sundowns keeper was comfortable on his line and relied on agility, which came in handy when making saves.
Moses Khanyeza One of the greatest keepers the country has ever had. Pity he never played abroad, because he would have been our best export.
Joe Frickleton Although not in the dugout when Pirates clinched the 1995 African Champions League, he gets credit for doing the legwork.
Jeff Butler He arrived from Zambia in 1988 a nobody, but Amakhosi were league champions a year later.
Gordon Igesund His two years as Bafana coach have dented his reputation, but the four premier league titles with Manning Rangers, Pirates, Santos and Sundowns stand him in good stead.
Clive Barker It’s not his flawless record at club level that gets him on this list, but his consistency as a coach, including his 1996 Africa Cup of Nations triumph with Bafana.
Ted Dumitru The last time Chiefs called on the Romanian, the club won back-to-back PSL trophies in 2004 and 2005.
Gavin Hunt He won the Premier League with Supersport United in 2008, 2009 and 2010.
Ruud Krol A treble winner with Pirates in 2011.
Stanley Screamer Tshabalala He was included in Football Arena’s 50 most influential people in South African football.
Roy Matthews Best remembered for winning the league championship in 1987 with Jomo Cosmos. Matthews discovered budding talent, among them Pitso Mosimane.
